The Mysterious Affair at Styles

Reviews of The Mysterious Affair at Styles

Reviewed by frequent buyer - Five Stars

A good beginning to the Hercule Poirot series. Shows the initial design of Poirot and Hastings. Well done.

Reviewed by A. S. Price - Piorot

This is the world's introduction to Poirot and his use of "the little gray cells". Poirot is one of my favorite literary characters. Quirky and maybe even a bit eccentric, Poirot uses his sensibilities to solve crimes though out London in the 1920s.

Reviewed by Stacy Joura - Must read this one to get background of Poirot and Hastings

Christie's first murder mystery. Set in the 1920's and reminds one of Downton Abbey.

Reviewed by Toni Lawrence - Agatha never disappoints

Agatha Christie never fails to excite me and stir up suspense. I enjoyed this book just as much as the others I have read over the years. A good read.

Reviewed by M. Adams - Surprise!

I was in the dark till the very end. Miss Christy always keep s me guessing right to the very end.

Reviewed by Patsy Hennessey - Great book, great value

I've been looking for inexpensive editions of my paper library favorites for my Kindle. This edition is inexpensive and complete. I'm not sure why there are comments about missing illustrations, as my download of this book included illustrations. Maybe not all devices can display the illustrations.

Reviewed by Pcm - Wonderful mystery

Somewhere along the way I had read this book but it was nice to re-read it again. I have always been an admirer of Agatha Christie's writing. She knows how to make a mystery twist and turn. Guessing who is guilty is always a challenge.

Reviewed by Elaine - THE MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT STYLES by Agatha Christie

The MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT STYLES introduces Hercule Poirot. Though it is the first book in which Christie's fictional Belgian detective appears, references within the story indicate that he has already solved many crimes. Captain Arthur Hastings, a friend of Poirot's, invites the detective to Styles to help solve a murder. A variety of suspects keep us wondering who committed it. Poirot seems unsure himself but, of course, in the end he'd known early on. As one who only thought of Hercule Poirot as vain and self absorbed, with grey cells that work enormously well, it was a pleasant surprise to learn that he is also a strong promoter of romance and love.

Reviewed by cako - Truly one of the best in detective fiction

Agatha Christie's books can be read over and over. Truly one of the best in detective fiction.

Reviewed by Amazon Customer - We meet Pirot

It was impossible to read this first of the Pirot series without comparing it with later books where Pirot is more developed.. I thought there were far to many red herrings and characters. Hastings in his first appearance seemed a bit wooden But that said Pirot is and will always be a great read.. He is a most endearing little man and as we learn more about him in future books we learn to love him even more.

Reviewed by grammie4n - Excellent. Great story line

Interesting characters and the time period is always fun to read about. Wii definitely continue reading her books.

Reviewed by knitter_girl - Stunning

The end of the book was confusing as Mr. Poroit explained how he had deduced the identity of the murderer. I couldn't keep track of the story.

This is typical Agatha Christie and Poirrot! No bad language or unnecessary violence (other than the murder!). I love this kind of writing.

5 out 5! The only other thing I can write is that if you haven't had the chance to read this short mystery Poirot book, then please read it now! A great summer mystery book! PROMISE!!! :)

Reviewed by Ronald B. Platt - Agatha Christie's first novel

The Mysterious Affair at Styles was Agatha Christie's first novel and it is very entertaining. Hercule Poirot is in the same class as Sherlock Holmes and Father Brown. They are all classic reading that will make you warm and fuzzy inside after you read them.

Reviewed by Jayne R Robertson - Always nice to reread an Agatha Christie

Always nice to reread an Agatha Christie. I have begun to reread them yet again, and this is a delightful one to start with!

Reviewed by Stella Seabass - TV SHOW IS BETTER :)

here's the thing - I love Poirot. So, I saw the episode...

Book is kind of long and drawn out so I just paged through it.

Hercule is best seen on the telly, not so much in the books. I mean unless you have a lot of time for that kind of thing.

Reviewed by Carol McBride - The debut of Hercules Peroit

It is amazing that there was once a world without Hercules Peroit and Captain Hastings. This book introduced these two characters, set in the World War I era of England, with a murder no one else can solve. What a delight to reread this twisted plot and the interesting characters!

Reviewed by Kindle Customer - 1st Poirot novel

This was the first novel with Inspector Poirot, the little Belgian character. Story is told by an Englishman, Hastings. Somewhat like Dr. Watson to Sherlock Holmes. A complicated plot with many possible murderers. Agatha Christie is the best mystery writer of all time.

read this book as part of a 2015 reading challenge. It falls under the category "read a book your mother read when she was young". I found out from this my mother loved Agatha Christie and all her books and to this day prefers a good mystery over romance novels. anyway, I digress. this was my first Agatha Christie/Hercules Pierot book and I really enjoyed it. Well written and holds up through the almost 100 years since it was penned. I would recommend it to others

I didn't think that the first mystery she wrote would have substance but I was very much mistaken. This story had great suspense and it was written very well just like the rest of her stories. Loved it.

Reviewed by John Doherty - As Hastings tells it...

A more three dimensional Hastings than the TV series seems to have allowed - given that Hastings narrates the story. Quite a few threads unraveling at the end, but the usual enjoyable AC read.

Reviewed by Jimmy Boyd - Five Stars

Agatha Cristie has always been a great writer

Reviewed by Denise M. Baets - Like visiting an old friend

I am an avid Agatha Christie fan. I have read all her books over and over again through the years. Any book by her is worth reading.

Reviewed by Amazon Customer - A truly good mystery

You can't go wrong with Agatha. the situations and locations are a little dated, perhaps, those little things are overcome with a well-written story, a chance to let your brain actually process tidbits of information (clues) and see if you are smart as the indomitable little Mr. Hercule Poirot.

Reviewed by rudyboy - Dame Agatha is the best!!!

I have been reading Agatha Christie novels since I was a kid. This is the first of her many Hercule Poirot mystery stories. I wish I knew more about Poirot before she wrote her novels. But she takes the cake on character developments with the narrator writing in the first person after the "mysterious affair". She uses simple logic and hands on detective work to solve the crime, while keeping the reader hanging on to each word. Old English idioms are a's interesting to know some phrases are coming back to me. Check out the book!! You won't be disappointed!!

Ah, Hercule Poirot is a wonderfully likable character. Imagine Frasier Crane as a detective. You need to read this book, the first in the series, to appreciate Mr. Poirot. After reading, treat yourself to the PBS movie interpretations. A great series for an easy, breezy book club.

Typical Agatha. Changed my mind over and over as to who "done it", but, as usual, don't know until the end.

Reviewed by AnnieP - Whodunnit??

A nice escape mystery puzzle out of the realm of serial killers, demented sadistic and oversick characters, too much lust and vulgar language. A story that for once isn't a nailbiter, nor does it fill you with eerie terror in the night or keep you up until dawn. It's just a good story. A real whodunit to relax with. If that is what you like, I recommend it.

Reviewed by Jetpack - The start of one of the best mystery series ever

Poirot was an extraordinary looking little man. He was hardly more than five feet, four inches, but carried himself with great dignity. His head was exactly the shape of an egg, and he always perched it a little on one side. His moustache was very stiff and military. I love the description of Poirot. This is the start of one of the best sets of mysteries ever made - the first appearance of the celebrated Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot.

Poirot is interesting for many reasons, one of the first that he was a famous detective as a member of the Belgian police force. Due to WW I, Poirot has to move to England as a refugee, and remains. It's also the first appearance of Capt. Hastings, the sometimes narrator of the stories.

Wonderful characters, great story. Easy 5 stars.
